Go Greek...

Enjoy the same flavorful Greek beef and pasta taste in a lighter, easy one-skillet meal. We have this with pita bread and yogurt on the side. We also make a homemade Greek Salad as well. It's a nice change to add to your normal list of meals. I also love that it's a cinch to make!!!

Prep Time:5 min
Start to Finish:25 min
Makes:4 servings (about 1 1/4 cups each)

Greek Beef and Orzo (lighter recipe)
recipe and photo source: Betty Crocker

1 pound extra-lean ground beef
2 cans (14 1/2 oz) stewed tomatoes, undrained
1 medium celery stalk, sliced ( 1/2 cup)
1 cup uncooked orzo or rosamarina pasta
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (or less if desired)
1/2 cup fat-free yogurt

Cook beef in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat about 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until brown; drain.

Stir in remaining ingredients except yogurt. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 12 minutes, stirring frequently, until liquid is absorbed and pasta is tender. Serve with yogurt on the side.
